Poll Shows Sam Brownback Is America’s Most Unpopular Governor
Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback is the most unpopular governor in America — and it’s not even close, a new poll showed Friday.
And results of the October jobs report, also released Friday, helped show why. The bottom line: Kansas has had the 10th worst rate of employment growth in the last year in the nation.
The poll was part of a survey of more than 75,000 people nationally by Morning Consult. The general conclusion: Governors are pretty popular, certainly better liked than Congress and President Barack Obama. Thirty-four governors have approval ratings of 50 percent or higher; 16 are over 60 percent.
However, Brownback is one of the 10 governors with a higher disapproval rating than approval.
He is at the bottom of the list with a 26 percent approval rating — and it wasn’t even close for being the most disliked governor in America. His disapproval rating was a sky-high 65 percent.
